Age of Thieves is a fantasy board game of strategy and adventure set in a port metropolis. Each player is a master thief about to commit the most daring burglary of his career; to break into the vault inside the Emperor’s palace and steal the Emperors’ Jewel, the symbol of power very precious to the ruling dynasty. However, this is hardly the end, because thieves must escape from the city with their loot. This is no easy task – the streets are patrolled by vigilant city guards and veteran captains well versed in all criminal tricks. Additionally, time is running fast for the thieves – event cards introduced each turn control the flow of the game, escalating its pace and difficulty of challenges for the players to overcome..
